My school network doesn't allow me to connect to online multiplayer games such as League of Legends and Guild Wars 2 probably because the firewall so my question is it there anyway to go around this limitation or is it possible to make just my computer an exception in the firewall from my computer?
There are ways around this; I won't go into details because most of them get you suspended, expelled or in jail. You're not saying in which country you are (and, as a minor, you shouldn't disclose such information on the Internet) but in most developed countries, tampering with computer security is a serious crime. People don't seem to get convicted often because of several reasons:
- Computer crimes are sometimes hard to track
- The damage is often petty
- Most crackers are just fired or expelled, i.e. there is no need for an expensive lawsuit. That also means their punishment isn't "broadcasted". It makes many people believe that you are invisible on the Internet while the opposite is true.
Also note: Internet connections are neither free nor unlimited. I'm not sure how much traffic todays games produce but the traffic for everyone else will be reduced by what your game needs. So playing games while other people try to do homework (so they can go home and play, too) might put your social status in peril.
So what other options do you have?
- You can ask your school for an exception.
- You can get a mobile stick for your laptop
- You can talk to a psychologist about your craving to play online games at school, especially when you feel like playing them during class.
- You can play with the other children. Rumor has it that once up on a time, children played something called "board games" with each other.
